"Thousands of little tots stayed up well past their bedtime to welcome their favourite television characters into town.
Stars from the BBC's CBeebies took centre stage to switch on Cardiff's Christmas lights last night.
The Tweenies, Postman Pat, Bob the Builder and Pc Plum, from Balamory, started the countdown to the city's festive season in a show at the civic centre.
They flipped the switch to transform the capital with a dazzling array of shimmering lights, after which the skies erupted in a volley of fireworks."
So Cardiff had no celebrities, just general folk dressed as cartoon characters...and a city full of brats!
But you know me, i was out there singing the Bob The Builder theme tune with all of my friends. :blink:
